About Box Elder Bugs

The box elder bug (sometimes called the garage beetle) is sometimes confused with “stink bugs”, a completely different type of pest. Instead, box elder bugs belong to a family known as “scentless plant bugs”. With that said, box elder bugs have been know to release a bad-tasting compound when disturbed in an effort to discourage being eaten.

Box elder Bugs can create large colorful aggregations while sunning themselves in areas near their host (whether it be a rock, a shrub, a tree, or a man-made structure). However, their mere presence can scare and annoy people, therefore they are widely considered nuisance pest and often require professional pest control. They are especially a nuisance during the colder months, when they invade houses seeking warmth. They generally remain inactive inside the walls and behind siding while the weather is cold, without doing much (if any) damage to the building. AMCO offers professional box elder bug pest control.
